But where I disagree with some readers is that I don't think that this is a bad thing.
Yes, it's derivative; yes, the author hasn't quite got the polish and comic timing of Adams. But that doesn't mean that it's not fun, that doesn't mean that it's not a great read and, that doesn't mean that it's not a thousand times better than the 'officially sanctioned' sequel to h2g2 by Eoin Colfer.
Funny and well worth the read for any self-respecting fan of humorous sci-fi.
And if Penguin ever decide to commission another chapter in the H2G2 universe, they could do a lot worse than phoning Jenn Thorson
Bertram Ludlow has been kidnapped by alien Rolliam Tsmorlood, because he is the only one who can save Earth and “life as we know it”. There’s only one problem; he has no idea what he’s doing and neither does Rollie.
The resulting story is a hilarious romp through the GCU (Greater Communicating Universe) as we discover its complexities and incongruities along with Bertram.
The story is well paced and speckled with humor. For the first half of the story, Bertram thinks that he has finally lost it and he keeps analyzing what he thinks is his delusion which leads to very funny inner dialogue.
The characters could have used a little bit more development but it does not really take anything away from the story. It could be a personal preference on my part. It certainly didn’t stop me from falling in deep like with Rollie, the badass alien outlaw who becomes Bertram’s sidekick (or vice versa, depending on the situation they find themselves in) against his will.
A solid 4 stars. I will definitely be reading the rest of this series.
Loved it, I hope I can put some kind of alert on Amazon to let me know when Book 3 is out.
There Goes the Galaxy grabbed me from the get-go, much in the same way Bertram was grabbed in his sock feet by Rollie. And unlike Bertram, who at one point is abandoned at an alien spaceport, author Jenn Thorson never released me, not even at the end of the book, when I was ready for the second course, the sequel The Purloined Number. The pacing is outstanding, with the two leads on the run and time running out, it’s mostly fast, but things like characters preparing in intriguing ways for the next scene still happen in the lulls, so there’s never a dull moment. Infopills between a few chapters give necessary background info in the style of Ben Bova, but more humorous..Plenty of celebrity references provide belly laughs in the course of this satire, much in the manner of Futurama and the Simpsons, only better! This book lasted me about a week, reading on breaks, at mealtimes and bedtime. I’ve now read it three times and probably will again. It’s action-packed fun, like a graphic novel, only it’s a word comic you can’t put down. For scifi lovers, it’s a gift that will never be forgotten!
